Creating a bio is one of the most difficult parts of setting up a Tinder profile. Your bio is supposed to tell the world who you are and why they should date you, but, if you’re one of the guys who’s filled theirs with overly-sexualized quotes or false information, it could be working against you and costing you potential dates.
If you’re looking to revamp your Tinder profile, these 5 quotes are for you.
“I’m an accountant who loves nature, and I’m looking for someone to go hiking with.”
Many people think that their Tinder bio should be “clever,” but if you’re having trouble coming up with a so-called clever bio, do yourself a favor and don’t think about it too hard. Stick to what you know the most about – yourself. This may seem like a boring approach to a dating app, but sometimes it’s best to just keep it simple and honest.
Now, you don’t need this quote exactly, but it’s always good to define yourself with your occupation and your hobbies. This is the quickest way for someone to get a sense of who you are and lets potential dates judge whether your lifestyles are compatible. If you’re a film buff, maybe include that you’re looking for the perfect movie date, or if you’re into cooking, maybe include you’re looking for a cure sous chef. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s telling of who you are.
“Looking for the April Ludgate to my Andy Dwyer.”
When thinking about bios, the shorter and more concise, the better. Putting a pop-culture reference in your bio is an easy way to convey your personality and interests in a short amount of time. You can fill this phrase in with whatever couple you admire, and it will let others know what you’re looking for in a relationship.
It’s also a bit more personable than the occupation-hobby introduction. While the previous quote is simple and to the point, you may be looking for something that better suits your personality. If you’re someone who is really into pop-culture, maybe even considers yourself a bit geeky, a reference to your favorite TV show or movie may be the way to go.
“If you like water, you already like 72% of me.”
When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a joke, as long as that joke isn’t overly-suggestive or sexualized. You should be careful not to cross the line into too aggressive or gross. Putting a joke in your bio that is playful, punny, or makes light of the situation is an effective way to break the ice and is a really good indication of the kind of person that you are. A lot of women prioritize a good sense of humor, so playing to this on your profile can already give you a leg up.
“I’m an animal lover.”
Confessing your love for animals can say a lot about you as a person. It can tell others that you’re compassionate for other creatures or that you have a loving nature, which could translate into the kind of partner you would be in a relationship. If you mention that you have pets of your own, that could show people that you are responsible and capable of taking care of another living thing, which is an attractive quality to find in a partner. It can also immediately weed out anyone who could potentially have an issue with your animal best friend.
“I’m just looking for a casual date or hookup.”
Tinder has a reputation of being less a dating site and more a place to meet other singles in the area who are looking for a hookup; if that is what you signed up for, that’s okay, but you need to be honest about it. It may seem like it would be a turn-off, but it immediately establishes where you stand and prevents those looking for a long-time commitment from feeling lead-on. There are plenty of women also looking for hookups, and this way, only women with the same mindset will be contacting you. Plus, honesty is always refreshing to see, especially on a dating site.
If on other hands you are actually looking for a serious relationship, you should probably stay away from Tinder. Eharmony and Match are the two websites you should try if you want a longterm relationship, instead of a one night stand or a quick fling. Registration
Creating your Tinder bio is like making a first impression. It’s the first thing a potential match will see, and if it doesn’t accurately represent who you are, it can make finding compatible matches even harder. Incorporate one of these quotes into your Tinder profile and get one step closer to finding the relationship (or hookup) you’ve been searching for.
